The FCOTUS remark is really, really, really offensive.

I know right...well, when Trump goes to an upcoming rally and tell his audience to punish his/their "enemies" and questions the "American values" of those that disagree with him.....I'm sure you won't be too offended.....



‘We’re going to punish our enemies and we’re gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us,’ if they don’t see that kind of upsurge in voting in this election, then I think it’s going to be harder and that’s why I think it’s so important that people focus on voting on November 2.”

Referring specifically to Republicans such as Senator John McCain, who formerly supported an overhual but now are stressing border security and supporting strict immigration laws like Arizona’s anti-illegal immigration measure, Mr. Obama said, “Those aren’t the kinds of folks who represent our core American values.”


funny how these "core American values" that o, hill, bernie and co. claim to have.... demand that we become more like Europe


heheheh

The trump Phenomenon what is It? there is no tangible plan no numbers no policy stances.. it's Just a campaign and speeches filled with clichés and his 1 liners
I will build a great, great wall on our southern border," Trump said. "And I will have Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words."


"Our country is in serious trouble," he said. "We don't have victories anymore. We used to have victories, but we don't have them.
our real unemployment is anywhere from 18% to 20%. Don't believe the 5.6%. Don't believe it


I have so many websites I have all over the place. I hire people, they do a website, It'll cost me $3," he said.

Trump also said the president's healthcare legislation should be repealed and "replaced with something much better for everybody ... and much less expensive.


"Rebuild the country's infrastructure; nobody can do that like me, believe me," he said. "It will be done on time, on budget, way below costs, way below what anyone ever thought

Its endless And I understand its the primaries and there are never a lot of details from the field .. but how will Trump he square the circle of his idea's...

He's going to have to do well in some big states Tuesday or I don't think he has a chance. Wait, I don't think that really matters either.

"Haven't you called the President of the US a POS and Hillary the FCOTUS?"

Of course, guilty as charged. But, where Trump's...ahem...anatomy... is irrelavent to his qualifications to be POTUS, the utter lack of ethics on display by Weird Harold and Hilary are clearly applicable in any discussion as to whether or not they are fit to be POTUS (or FCOTUS, as the case may be). And I wouldn't use that language in a televised debate. That whole thing over Trump's hands was offensive and pathetic.

"Didn't Doozer use the name of a slave in Gone with the Wind in reference to President Obama?"

Who, Mammy? Or the skinny one? "I don't know nothin' about bein' no POTUS". Clearly, sir. Clearly...

Yet when Palin mentions "battleground states", she is condemned as calling for bloodshed.

Agreed!

Yes, we know they are a bunch of hypocrites, we just don't need to make it so easy for them...

Is it more offensive to you, or less offensive to you, than the fact that Hilary denied that Bill cheated on her, blamed the GOP for framing him, and then she attacked the character of her husband's victims? And then she lied about the sniper attack, and then lied about why she lied about it. Which is worse?

It wasn't intended as a compliment, Spence. I'm too old to have the inclinatin to make fake-nice with peopel who slander everyone on my side. She claims the GOP framed her husband to make it look like he cheated, and that's not any kind of character flaw?

He is strongest among Republicans who are less affluent, less educated and less likely to turn out to vote. His very best voters are self-identified Republicans who nonetheless are registered as Democrats. It’s a coalition that’s concentrated in the South, Appalachia and the industrial North, according to data provided to The Upshot by Civis Analytics, a Democratic data firm.
Sounds like his "very best" voters are so uneducated they couldn't figure out how to change their party affiliation.

This is a big problem for Trump, come election day the traditional conservative base is just going to stay home.

But I bet they could manage providing an ID if required .
I think the Democrats have a bigger problem . But that's just an uneducated guess .

actually sounds like the author's very desperate attempt to esplain' all of the democrat voters favoring racist, sexist, bigot Trump....the idea that there might be all of these folks that identify as republican but register as democrats so they can vote for Trump, or maybe vote against the criminal and the commie doesn't really make much sense...pretty laughable

the "traditional conservative base" just lived through 8 years of Obama....you can guarantee they will not be sitting out on election day...even if Trump is the nominee

The author refers to them as self described Republicans. Perhaps they really are racist, sexist bigots who are self describing as Republicans because they don't think that behavior is compatible with the Democratic party.
